Kathleens Country House

If you prefer to stay in a quietly situated owner-run establishment of character rather than an hotel, Kathleen O’Regan Sheppard’s long-established guesthouse just a mile from Killarney town centre could be the place for you.


Just off the main Killarney-Tralee road, it is well situated for some of the country’s most beautiful scenic drives, as it’s just at the beginning of the Ring of Kerry route.


It’s convenient for a wide range of outdoor pursuits too, and would make an especially handy base for golfers playing any of the nearby courses – Killarney Golf & Fishing Club, Beaufort GC and Dunloe GC are all very close by.


When Kathleen opened here in 1980, she was one of the first to offer what was effectively hotel standard accommodation at guesthouse prices - and, today, this family-run business continues to give good value and comfort, along with Kathleen’s special brand of hands-on hospitality.


Guests tired of bland modern rooms enjoy the fact that the décor reflects the owner’s personality and interests (notably nature and art), and this is seen especially in the spacious public areas that provide plenty of room for relaxing.


Individually decorated rooms are comfortably furnished, with orthopaedic beds, phone, TV, and tea/coffee-making facilities, and the fully tiled bathrooms all have bath and shower.


Excellent breakfasts are served in an attractive dining room overlooking the garden, setting you up for the day: everything served at breakfast is based on the finest produce, local where possible, and beautifully presented.


Kathleen is a fund of local knowledge and takes pride in ensuring that her guests know all the best places to visit during their stay – and, as she’s very well informed on the local restaurant scene, she can direct guests to the best choices for evening meals and also lunch breaks when they’re out and about.

Rooms 17 (all no smoking, 1 family, 2 ground floor, 4 single); B&B €50-60 pps (€37.50 low season), ss €15. Free broadband wi/fi; children welcome (under 3s free in parents' room, cot available free of charge, baby sitting arranged); wheelchair access ground floor only. Turndown service offered. Garden, walking. Closed 1 Oct - Easter. Amex, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
